Back in the 20s, the majority of the furniture on the market was wooden and heavy - dark woods. Pieces that had been carved and shaped into furniture works of art were commonly seen in homes. But then a movement started where less was more. The modernism movement replaced those heavy pieces of wood and thick padded and upholstered pieces with simple and sleek metal designs. Shiny polished metal, was the key to this type of furniture originally, with the whole idea being to replace all those heavy looking and heavy feeling pieces with light and airy furniture designs.
Lamps and other modern furniture accents are few and compact. They are going to be functional pieces that do their job, and take up a minimal amount of space while doing it. That, after all, is the goal of modern furniture, to fill the void that exists (the need for a piece of furniture) and that`s it. No pomp. No circumstance. The joy a piece of modern furniture gets is just being functional. Once piece of furniture you should invest in is a modern console table. A modern console table is not only a table, but offers a 2-for-1 deal when it comes to using the space in your living room. Instead of just offering a tabletop surface, a modern console table will likely have a drawer and/or shelves below that will hold books, and other things that may clutter up other portions of the room.
Roll Desk Styles. Some contemporary console tables come with a roll desk style, a charming way to hide bills, mail and other paperwork during a dinner or cocktail party. Everybody needs an unloading zone, but it`s not like you want a landfill of papers sitting in your hallway. Contemporary sideboards with roll desk styles let you hide the mess elegantly.
Bamboo, aluminum and black lacquered wood and curvaceous shapes or added curlicues of aluminum or wrought iron are just some of the ways by which this old stand-by has come of age. Once you have one in your home, you`ll readily see why they`ve been so accepted and well-loved for lo these many years. They are ready to come home with you and add tons of style, while performing an important storage task, contemporary console tables will add a new dimension to your home`s décor. You`ll wonder how you ever got along without one!
